    Old phone collection 3.png

    Hello everyone and welcome to another Hello Weekend by Writer's Club!

    This time we are going to open some drawers (physically and mentally). During the last weeks, maybe you had a moment of inspiration and you decided to organize your room/wardrobe/home... If you did, I'm sure that you found some treasures!

    If not, now is the moment. To make things easy, your task is to find old phones with these simple rules:
    • No phones released after 2018, considering those are quite new.
    • Set your phones chronologically on a line and add their names below.
    • If there's a phone you lost/can't find/gave to anyone, leave a gap.
    • Tell us something remarkable about your collection, like a story, the adventures/misadventures you had with them, historical moments you lived with them...
    • Keep an eye around, you might find your old phone twin! (Excluding OnePlus phones, that'd be too easy... :p)
    • Optionally you can include special accessories/objects related to the phone.

    And if that's not enough, coincidentally on Sunday 10th we celebrate the Clean Up Your Room Day! What's your excuse now? ;)

    I can't wait to see your museum pieces!! Let's enjoy our weekend trip to the past :cool:


    My collection:

    Nice idea @B.I.T.S. sadly I rarely keep a phone. I have always passed them on to others. But I can tell you that my first ever phone was a Phillips BT Cellnet

    Awww, you allowed your museum's pieces to fly away! I'm sure they lived a great life tho :cool:

    That first phone looks awesome, who would have told us 22 years ago that we'd have what we use right now? :oops:

    Yes! Please @Tessthecat we want to see them :cool:

    My first OnePlus phone was the One that I received an invite to purchase as an early supporter.

    Bought a few different One’s and backs, OP2, OPX, OP3 and OP5.

    I don’t have a picture of the 5 as my oldest son is still using it as his daily driver.

    Got disillusioned with OnePlus promises for the best camera experience and the OnePlus 5 was my last OnePlus phone as I bounced between Google Pixel and iPhones.

    About a week too late! :D I just put away some of my older phones - some type of BlackBerry, Nokia 9300i, some Motorola flip phone and "candy bar" Sony Erickson, Original iPhone, a couple Umidigi phones (A1 Pro and A3), ZTE Open (Firefox phone), a Nokia windows phone, HTC One S and a Fisher Price roll-about phone :p

    My first phone was a brick of a phone - it was legally a weapon! Back when you paid just to have the phone and then paid per minute of usage (we didn't need no fancy text messaging back then - we were tough!)

    Then moved on to an Ameritech (think that's name) phone with a flip out cover that went over the keypad (it's that thing you see onscreen now, but actually physical buttons! :eek::eek::eek:) It seemed cool at the time and much smaller with an antenna that could be pulled out or pushed back in :rolleyes: That started me on text messages somewhat - you had to use the numeric pad to make 'words'.

    btw, do pagers count? :p
